Ice Cream Brownie Cake

Find it On Pinterest

Cook's Note: I was looking for a unique, delicious and easy cake to make for my husband's birthday and ran across this recipe on Pinterest and thought to myself: "I can do this!" I must say - this recipe was tedious (just a lot of steps) - definitely not hard to make, just a bit time consuming. It turned out really good and for the adventurous baker - its worth a try because your family and friends will not be disappointed. 

What You Will Need:

1 box Milk Chocolate Brownie Mix (made according to package instructions)
1 jar of pre-made, store bought whipped chocolate frosting (like Duncan Hines) 
1 gallon of your favorite ice cream
1 container of Cool Whip
Sprinkles for topping


Using an 8x8 glass baking dish, bake the brownies according to the package instructions (don’t use the family size brownie mix), sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Once brownies have baked, ensure that you let the brownies cool completely before moving to the next step – this is very important!! (give it about 30 minutes to cool on the counter)

Spread chocolate frosting evenly onto cooled brownies.

Place frosted brownies in refrigerator.

Now remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften on the counter for about 30 minutes.

Remove brownies from refrigerator and top with ice cream, spreading the ice cream evenly across.
Cover with aluminum foil and place in freezer for at least 3 hours.

Before serving – let your Cool Whip soften on the counter for about 20 minutes and then spread this layer on evenly and sprinkle on your sprinkles of your choice as best you can J

Warning: Because the brownie bottom layer hardens in the freezer and then the ice cream hardens on top of that - this is REALLY HARD to cut. So you may want to let this sit out on the counter for about 30 minutes before you serve it.

STORAGE: Be sure to store leftovers in an air tight in freezer for up to 2 weeks.
